    I went to school at Geneva when I was younger and now my children go there. It is a wonderful school that encourages parent involvement & has wonderful teachers.

    We are now wrapping up our first year at Geneva and I can't say enough great things about it. My two children's teachers though very different from each other were equally fantastic. The small-town quality of this school combined with a challenging academic environment made this a great place for our kids to thrive. At our previous school siblings weren't even allowed on campus. Fortunately that is not at all the case at Geneva and therefore we've been able to attend lunches plays meetings etc. without either having to find a babysitter of not attend the event. This school really seems to have it's priorities in order even in times when the state is pressuring everyone to 'teach' the FCAT. Also I have to mention that this school is kept immaculate by the custodial staff.

    in recent years there seems to be a lack of funding for SLD and LD kids IEP hours are not always met due to not enough staff lack funding for items like extra text books or books on tape which are free but lack ability to follow thru to meet kids needs and becoming very poor at keeping track of kids with chronic illness such as asthma. not the A school it used to be. there is more to a good education than just FCAT scores. As for after school programs they have a lot they are just all expensive if you have the money great if not your out of luck at this school.

    2nd grade was a dream 3rd grade has been tough but doable. The difference is fcat and I don't warrant it the school or teaching staff's fault although I have seen a bit more apprehension in my daughter's teacher who looped with my daughter's class. I feel that something has been lost this year and hope that the state will examine exactly what is happening while preparing for fcat plus why they expect that algebra and probability questions should be on fcat and answerable by 9 and 10 year olds. This has been a tough year but I am grateful for the staff and teachers that my daughter has. She has a good school and that is why I know she will slam dunk fcat! Overall too no school is perfect but I feel that they have been good to our child and we appreciate that!

    Lino Rodriguez is considered to be one of the best if not the best elementary school principal in Seminole county.
